Sediment bowl assembly removal

Postby Bob cramer » Sat Aug 20, 2016 10:41 am

What is the safest way to remove the entire unit unit from the bottom of the tank for replacement. I'm concerned about thread damage. Thanks
Bob

Since it's easy to take off, I like to take the tank off first so the fuel bowl is easy to get to. Then just screw it out of the tank. The tank threads are steel, the fuel bowl is aluminum so the fuel bowl will strip first if there is a problem getting it out. I've never had the tank threads to strip. If you are replacing the bowl, it won't matter if the bowl threads strip out.

I never had the tank off one so I can't help with this.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Yup. Drain the fuel from the tank. Then remove the tank. Easy task.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Agree with Eugene, on my 154 I removed the two straps that secure the tank to the tractor, disconnected the fuel line and lifted the tank up and away. The tank was already empty. Stan
